Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti

I got this recipe from a friend Christy. I was a little skeptical, but it was so good. and a better alternative to pasta.

Spaghetti Squash 1 squash

Ground turkey (Jenni-o) 1 pound

Spaghetti Sauce 1 jar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut spaghetti squash lengthwise and scrape out seeds. Pierce with a fork. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, Italian seasonings and garlic salt to your personal liking. Cover with foil and bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours cut side up. You don't want it to be crunchy or soggy when you scrape it out. Once cooked, let cool for a couple minutes then scraped out the squash with a fork. ( did mine cut side down with water all in the bottom of the cookies sheet. it worked fine. t hat is just how I always cooked squash before.)


I sprinkle a little Worcestershire, garlic salt, steak seasoning, and salt and pepper on the ground turkey to make it taste more like beef and then brown it in a saucepan on the stove. Once it's cooked add your choice of spaghetti sauce and warm in pan.

Serve sauce over spaghetti squash with Parmesan cheese on top. I like to serve it with a light garlic bread.
(I had too much sauce for the amount of noodles this made, so either do two squashes or save the rest of the sauce for another meal later)
